Neighbourhood Plan

  • A big thank you to all those who attended the public consultation at the end of 2017.  We enjoyed a good turnout and received a great deal of useful feedback!  All comments have been taken into consideration and draft plans edited accordingly.

A Steering Group was set up early 2017 to create a Neighbourhood Plan. The parish of Kirk Langley needs to get such a plan in place to ensure any future development of the area fits with the desires and aspirations of its residents. In this way any planning applications put before Amber Valley Planning must take into account the terms and conditions of our plan.

The Steering Group met for the first time on 11th January 2017 to elect officers and to map out a way forward for generating the plan.  Further information can be obtained by contacting us here :-

There will be opportunities for further consultation as we proceed. In the mean time if you have any further ideas, thoughts, recommendations then please feel free to get in touch with one of the team.

The Steering Committee comprises:

Chair                                 Brenda Whittaker
Vice Chair                         Richard Benfield (Ben)
Treasurer                          Hilary Leonard
Secretaries                       Jenny Patterson and Linda Smith
